This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documen-
tation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual
Web2C: A TeX implementation.
The weave program is used to create a TeX file for viewing a Web pro-
gram. It takes appropriate care of typographic details like page lay-
out and the use of indentation, italics, boldface, etc., and it sup-
plies extensive cross-index information that it gathers automatically.
The command line arguments are the same as for tangle except for the
option: -x says to omit the index, module name list, and table of con-
tents pages. (A CONTENTS.tex file will still be written when the TeX
file is processed, however, unless some macros in webmac.tex are rede-
The output TeX file name is formed by adding .tex to the root of the
Web file name.
There are several macros that probably should be redefined by the pro-
grammer at the beginning of the Web file. It is a good idea to set
\title to the name of the program. And, to cause output of only
changed modules, one can say \let\maybe=\iffalse (usually as the first
change in the change file).
The environment variable WEBINPUTS is used to search for the input
files, or the system default if WEBINPUTS is not set. See tex(1) for
the details of the searching.
